    truebrit's Note:

    I originally found this in Betty Crocker's New Christmas Cookbook, and I have made these a number of times. To give the cookies a festive look, dip half of each cookie into melted vanilla coating! (Cooking time does not include refrigeration time.)

      This is my favorite! I have been making this recipe for 20 years or so and love these!! I also got it from a Betty Crocker, although not a holiday edition as you mentioned. A suggestion for the previous reviewer to keep the cookies softer longer, addjust a bit more flour to the recipe, that goes for snickerdoodles,etc too. It makes them softer and they usually stay softer longer too. She is already doing good things to keep them longer!! Great with tea, whipping creams,etc for holiday dishes.

      I love gingersnaps and these were very easy and had a great flavor. I did find that unless I kept them in a tightly covered container with a soft piece of white bread they did become hard even though I did not over bake them. Thanx for a great recipe.
